On Thursday, July 14, the national team of Italy will meet with the national team of Iceland at Akademi Stadium in the second match of Group D of UEFA Women’s Euro. Will the southerners be able to make up for last week’s defeat? Full statistics and the best odds for a match can be found at how to register with 1xbet.
Italy was smashed to smithereens by France in the opening match of this quartet, which ended 5-1 in favor of the latter. “Le Adzurre are the old-timers of the UEFA Women’s Championship. They finished second twice (1993, 1997), once in third place and twice in fourth place. However, their performance against the Tricolor did not reflect at all like the game of a contender for the trophy. Perhaps this time we’ll see a completely different team, and the opponent is much more modest.
Valentina Chernoya, who was injured, has not yet returned to full training. She may not appear on the field on Thursday. Cristiana Girelli is expected to lead the attack, while Valentina Bergamaschi and Barbara Bonansea will operate on the flanks.
Iceland got a point against Belgium. “The Vikings should have even won, but were unlucky with the realization. Nevertheless, they proved to be relentless fighters. The Stelpurnar Okkar team made their Euro debut in 2009 and reached the quarterfinals. Since then, they have consistently competed in every tournament. Striker Bergeland Thorvaldsdottir missed several good goal scoring opportunities against Belgium and will try to be less wasteful on Thursday.
The teams have met each other twice in international friendlies, with Italy winning 1-0 and the other duel ending in a 1-1 draw.
Forecast for the match Italy – Iceland
Iceland, which will meet the French after Italy, has some difficult days ahead. France is the most formidable team in the group. “Stelpurnar okkar” will try to score enough points to secure a place in the next round before the match with the three-color. However, the Southerners are also up against the wall and will do their best to rehabilitate themselves in front of the fans for the humiliating fiasco last Sunday. Both sides will rely on attacking action, so goals to come. I predict a total goal total of more than 2.5.
